John Preston Healthcare, a mobility distributor with stores in Northern Ireland and Scotland, has revamped and relaunched its flagship showroom near Edinburgh.
A special event was held at the Loanhead store, which is just south of the capital, and featured a wide range of mobility technology on display and offered demonstrations of mobility scooters, active wheelchairs, folding electric wheelchairs and riser recliners.
The event was attended by customers, suppliers, local OTs and double Paralympian and former team GB wheelchair rugby captain Michael Kerr.
As well as being the founder of the Michael Kerr Foundation, Kerr is also the brand ambassador for the cooling wheelchair backrest solution, the wheelAIR.
John Preston Healthcare Group is a sixth generation family business and operates in the mobility and medical equipment industry in both the UK and Ireland. In addition to specialist equipment the company provides advice to the NHS, care sector and private retail clients.
The business is ISO9001 accredited and last year it became a member of the BHTA. Founded in 1846, John Preston says it is continuing to evolve. It now also exports throughout Europe and beyond through its e-commerce platform.
Recently the firm has been busy expanding its product portfolio and boosting its mobility team.
